Information about Richa

I am a native of India from the state of Punjab who has been living in U.K for over 35 years. I am fluent in three languages i.e Hindi, English and Punjabi. I specialise in teaching conversational Hindi, Punjabi and English. Since I teach the conversational part of the language (which involves listening, understanding, conversing, group discussion,vocabulary building,grammar, pronunciation,sentence structure and various other aspects of effective communication) it is an interesting way of teaching and learning because I teach through talking. Though my lessons are structured but they are very interesting. I am very dedicated to my work and take lot of pride in my work. I am very flexible and approachable. Patience is my biggest virtue and I can teach same thing in lots of different ways. All my lessons are tailor made according to the individual needs of my students. I can do one to one teaching or can take on groups. I am equally comfortable in online teaching. My approach to teaching is very relaxed and uncomplicated. I use lots of visual objects so that the students have a clear understanding of the concepts. My students include national and international students and Skype has been great because the student is sitting in the comfort of their home without any pressure. I enhance my student`s strengths and work on their weakness. I offer support 24/7 through e-mail. If something is not clear students don`t need to wait til next session. They can always drop me a mail and I`ll be more than happy to help them. For me teaching is an ongoing journey. I have love for languages and it shows in my work.
Even if you need few hours of lessons to brush up your existing skills or you are visiting India for a holiday I can prepare lessons which will enable you to communicate effectively or if you are on a work assignment in India I can also help you to converse with the natives.
For my young students I have prepared some games which make the lesson even more interesting and engaging and it helps them to understand different concepts much more easily.
I offer free introductory session to my new potential students so that we get to know each other better and it helps me to prepare the lessons according to the needs of my students. You can book a free consultation session with me through Tutor Hunt and see for yourself how language learning can be a productive and rewarding activity.

Availability: I am available 7 days a week and anytime during the day or evening.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have been teaching conversational Hindi, English and Punjabi for the last 12 years.

I also do workshops in primary schools about India, Indian languages, Indian culture, Indian festivals, Indian food and lots more.
I have done voluntary work in Middle Schools in U.K.
Partner in Retail Business (1984-2007)

Each lesson with Richa has been enjoyable and informative, providing the necessary groundwork to enable the student to quickly see progress in their understanding of the language. All the lessons are run professionally and Richa has the patience of a saint, gives constructive feedback and you may even get the odd `emoji` during the lesson indicating the good work that being achieved! Thanks for getting me this far.

Richa is an excellent tutor! She was kind enough to do group Hindi sessions with my brother and I. She is very approachable, friendly and keen to adapt lessons to our needs and we have definitely seen improvement on our ability to pick up Hindi and with basic conversation so far. We would recommend Richa as a tutor

From having just 10 lessons, Richa has gained my confidence in speaking Punjabi greatly. She is extremely friendly, patient and adaptable so that each lesson is tailored to me. I would highly recommend Richa and I will definitely come back for more lessons in the future.

Fantastic tutor! I`ve had half a dozen or so lessons with Richa, and she is brilliant: very adaptable, friendly and really good at tailoring the lessons to my needs. I have been taking lessons short-term before going to India this summer on a student placement and I already feel a hundred times more confident with my speaking. Would thoroughly recommend, and although I won`t have as much need to have lessons after my trip to India is done, I would definitely come back for lessons in future.

Tutors Response :

Thanks for your lovely feedback.

Richa has been a fantastic tutor. Her ability to understand your starting level through the free introductory session and then tailor the lessons to suit your needs and progress are exceptional. Her personable approach and patience has been very appreciated.

The flow of lessons works very well for me, focussing on building every day conversational pieces and then delving into the more technical elements of each sentence to understand how and why it is formed. This part in particular has helped me to really grasp Punjabi.

I would highly recommend Richa.

Tutors Response :

Dear Nav,

Thanks for your lovely feedback.
